Patriots & Bears Players Get Into Brawl At Joint Practice (Video)
NFL teams love joint practices. Why? Because they can stop hitting and pushing around their own teammates, and begin hitting and pushing another team instead.
On Monday, the New England Patriots and the Chicago Bears were holding joint practices ahead of their Thursday night matchup during week 2 of the preseason.
During a scrimmage, things got hectic between New England cornerback Malcolm Butler and Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.
Fight was sparked by WR Alshon Jeffrey and CB Malcolm Butler — Butler was just escorted out of practice.
